Overview

Dawson City’s world famous non-profit gambling hall is named after bona fide dance hall queen Diamond Tooth Gertie. During the Gold Rush of 1898, in order to distinguish herself from numerous Klondike kings and queens, Gertie Lovejoy wedged a sparkling diamond between her two front teeth. Any discomfort this caused paid dividends. Instead of working the creeks for her riches, Diamond Tooth Gertie made her fortune by mining the lonely prospectors who readily opened their gold pokes in return for her affections. In Dawson City today, Gertrude Lovejoy’s moniker lives on at the town-run Diamond Tooth Gertie's Casino.Replete with cancan dancers and a singing master of ceremonies named Gertie, Canada’s oldest gambling hall gives you a chance to re-live the heady days of Dawson’s Gold Rush era. With three nightly shows by Gertie and her Gertie Girls, Diamond Tooth Gertie's is today a fixture of fun-filled entertainment where patrons can enjoy a beverage while playing blackjack, roulette, Texas Hold'em poker and an array of glittering slot machines.

We went to the 8:30 performance and found it to be much better than we expected. The performers are professional and put on an excellent show with some audience participation. I gambled and lost my usual $10 but liked that all the money goes to...More

The show is so much fun and it is a step back in time. Go back to the days where a trip into town was the highlight of the year and a place to party.

We decided to try Diamond Tooth Gerties and the show was good. The girls worked hard to entertain us. We did not partake of the gambling so cannot comment. The food choice is sparce but the meat loaf was tasty

We enjoyed Gerties song and dance show. The money is all used for the community and Gertie can really sing. The chorus girls were very talented. A nice show.

I had a fun time watching the live show. Most reviews have already described this saloon, definitely visit when you are in town.

It's a bar and gambling hall, but a tourist attration at the same time. That being said, not a great place for children in my opinion. Adult fun.

I am confused to what this show is. Is it suitable for children ages 3, 5 & 9? How long is the show? TIA

No, they would find it boring. Given the gambling I don't think they let anyone in under age 19
